Vision and Mission
At PS 889, we provide an educational experience that is both rigorous and joyful, and designed to ignite the gifts and talents in every child, every day. The use of the school enrichment model will foster enjoyment, engagement and enthusiasm for learning as our students participate in theme-based units of study that incorporate the arts, music, and movement and experiences working with experts connected to the theme to make learning relevant and authentic. Direct instruction using the workshop approach in foundational literacy and math is equally prominent in our program. Though the collaborative effort of dedicated teachers and engaged families, our students will be equipped with the content knowledge, critical thinking skills and timeless values necessary to be productive members of our school community and their communities at-large.
